Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) had taken delivery of its first A321neo, becoming the launch operator of the version of the aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-JM geared turbofan engines. 

ANA’s A321neo is configured for 194 passengers with 8 premium class seats and 186 economy class seats. ANA will start scheduled commercial services on domestic routes from October. The aircraft is the first for the airline to be used on domestic routes equipped with in-flight entertainment system for all seats. 

ANA currently operates 16 A320 Family aircraft, with another 29 on order for future delivery. Parent company ANA HOLDINGS (ANA HD) also has three A380s on order. 

The A321 is the largest member of the A320 Family and seats between 185 and 240 passengers, depending on cabin configuration. Incorporating the latest engines, aerodynamic advances and cabin innovations, the A321neo offers a reduction in fuel consumption of 15 per cent per seat from day one and 20 per cent by 2020 and can fly up to 4,000 nautical miles (7,400 kilometres) non-stop – further than any other single-aisle airliner. 

The A320 Family is the world’s best-selling single-aisle product line and comprises four models (A318, A319, A320, A321) seating from 100 to 240 seats. To date, the Family has won over 13,200 orders and more than 7,700 aircraft have been delivered to some 400 customers and operators worldwide.
